Spurs legend heaps praise on ‘international footballer’ Harry Kane

It took the impressive young talent of Harry Kane just 80 seconds to score his first senior England goal with just his third touch on the international stage.

Spurs legend, Glenn Hoddle, who was a pundit for tonight’s game on ITV says Kane has everything required to be an international star.

“I put my head on a block here, I think he is going to be an international footballer, he’s got every attribute we need up there.”

Kane played around 30 minutes in England’s 4-0 win over Lithuania at Wembley and he took his chance with both hands after a fine season with Tottenham in the Premier League.

England have won all five of their qualifiers now and are in a strong position to kick on and win the group ahead of the 2016 European Championship finals in France next year.

Kane’s rise to the highest level has taken a little time but he has continued to improve with each game and it looks like the only way is up for the Spurs hero.

Hoddle has been impressed with Kane’s progression and heaped further praise on the 21 year old.

“I think what we have got to look at is how he adapted to the Premier League from the jump of Under 21’s and how he looks so comfortable instantly and is scoring goals.”

Has Kane got what it takes to be the best out-and-out goalscorer for England?
